For some reason i have no brake lights or blinkers out back. My 3rd brake light works, but left and right side don't luminate. Checked bulbs, there ok, checked fuses, there ok... Do i have a broken wire? Any hints where to go from here?

Check to see if your dashboard lights work. If they don't work either it is probably a fuse. there's my best shot.... Good luck!

I'd start with the fuse followed by a test light (if you have one (if not they're cheap) and testing the terminals at the lights and working in.

Do you have the trailer light harness installed? If so, try taking it out-of-line with the tail light wiring (y-harness behind the driver's-side tail light) and see if this helps.

John is a goober, he posted this and then spent an hour text messaging me yesterday about this. He has a DMM and I walked him through checking everything. He has no blown fuses, no power to the passenger side turn signal socket and only has running lights, but no brake lights except the high mount stop. He just recently douched his Jeep doing some puddle hopping. Sounds like a TIPM issue to me. Anyways, he has warranty on the Jeep until 2017 so he's taking it to the dealer to let them diagnose it.

ok, have not yet brought it in, because they are super booked up, and because I spoke to a service advisor, he said it might also be the Brake switch.... Now here is my question, could it still be the brake switch if my 3rd brake light is coming on? right and left dont work, neither do blinkers, But, 3rd light does... cant see how it could be the brake switch unless there is multiple switches sending power seperatly to the 3rd brake light and that switch is still functioning... is that how the switch works?

Time to do some more reading
